|After installing the update to paraview, I can no longer use the paraFoam command to launch Paraview. However, it can be launched using paraFoam -builtin.
|Steps To Reproduce
|1. Install openFoam 10 on Ubuntu (prior to installing the patch paraFoam worked fine)
2. Intsall patch as per https://openfoam.org/news/paraview-5-10/ to update Paraview to 5.10.1
3. Attempt to launch paraview with the command paraFoam. Receive error message below in additional information.
4. Launch paraview with the command paraFoam -builtin. Paraview launches.
|Error message when attempting to launch paraFoam:
FATAL ERROR: The official reader module for OpenFOAM data does not exist on

compiled with OpenFOAM, or distributed with a packaged version of OpenFOAM.
For information on packaged versions of OpenFOAM/ParaView and compilation of
OpenFOAM/ParaView, see https://openfoam.org/download

|No tags attached.
|Which version of Ubuntu are you running?
No need to respond to the previous question.
I found that the reader modules did not get compiled on Ubuntu 22.04 and 22.10.
Am rebuilding the packs now and will upload to the repository shortly...
The faulty package has been deleted and replaced.
Because it is a replacement with the same version number, I suggest deleting the faulty one:
apt purge openfoam10
then do an update of the repository and install the replacement
apt install openfoam10
